Abstract

Gastrointestinal tract involvement in progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS) is common. A 46-year-old woman with PSS and calcinosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal hypomotility, sclerodactyly, and telangiectasias with evidence of widespread intestinal tract involvement is described in whom multiple colonic telangiectasias (angiodysplasias) were found on colonoscopy, a finding not previously reported to our knowledge. The telangiectasias represent a potential cause of gastrointestinal tract bleeding.
